Rooms full of Jack­sons, Michael Jack­son

Where Paris - - Arts& Attractions -

The Grand Palais in Paris is pay­ing trib­ute to one of the great cul­tural fig­ures who emerged out of the 20th cen­tury in an ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled Michael Jack­son: On the Wall. The show of­fers an ex­plo­ration of the cul­tural im­pact of Michael Jack­son’s star­dom and mu­si­cal work on the world of con­tem­po­rary art from the 1980s to the present day. The artist re­mains one of the most in­flu­en­tial cul­tural fig­ures to have emerged from the 20th cen­tury and his legacy lives on into the 21st cen­tury. Since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982, a range of con­tem­po­rary artists across the gen­er­a­tions and the con­ti­nents have done the same and the show brings to­gether the works of over 40 of th­ese artists em­a­nat­ing from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions around the world all the while in­clud­ing new works made es­pe­cially for the ex­hi­bi­tion. The works pre­sented have been cre­ated in myr­iad medi­ums in­clud­ing paint­ing, draw­ing, sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, video and per­for­mance. - P.V.
